    Am I the only one who thinks that "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite" is the best track of this album?

    Unbelievable album, what an emotional tour de force. From the alienation of Drive and the rage of Ignoreland to the reckoning of Nightswimming and the tear-stained hope of Find the River, every song a classic. The best of the stellar run of albums REM had from 1991 to 1996.

    R.E.M. are the best example of a band I can think of who are just as good here as on their earlier albums, after that "maturing" phase that takes so many lesser bands into dull, formulaic territory.

    The last perfect R.E.M. album.

    best album of the 90s (with In Aeroplane over the Sea) and one of the best records in music history! Unbelievably perfect!!! Especially if you consider that it has been released after mediocore Green and Out of Time and before fine but not so great Monster. Miracle!

    The album that introduced REM to me. I keep thinking these are older guys than me, but when they made it they were thirty-somethings wrinting classic songs with the depth of a full life experience. These songs are a personal viewport into days of the 90's as a teen, feelings, moods, mental images come back. It was also the only cassette in our car my dad could accept listeinng to from our music. (The others must have been RATM, Nirvana and the likes)

    Well I haven't listen to further albums but for me this one is really beautiful in it's entirety, I even feel ashamed for calling this band boring when I was just starting listening to their albums. Hopefully this album will stay one of my favourite overall for the rest of my life.

    I can't pick a favorite, but this and "Murmur" are clearly watershed moments for R.E.M: "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite" "Man on the Moon" and "Nightswimming" are masterpieces on their own terms, and the sequencing of the last three songs is simply astounding.

    Beautiful album and truly inspiring with great lyrics and song subjects. The last perfect or near perfect R.E.M. album.

    Perfect. Bought this 1992 on my first visit in London, UK. Copied it to tape for the car. The tape was 45 minutes each side and at the half of "Find the river" the tape was full and stopped. I listen to this month for month and year for year. Every time I hear the song now on CD (I have changed my car and equipment in the meantime), I remain hanging in the same place.

    "I opened my first portable CD player Christmas morning 1991 and found two CDs sitting next to it. My mom bought me R.E.M.’s Automatic for the People (1991) and Guns N’ Roses Use Your Illusion I (1991). I opened Automatic for the People first." - http://ctheh.com/albums/guestpost_art/

    this album IS nostalgia.

  • fmaratz

    Definitely one of my least favourite R.E.M. albums. Personally, it was a big letdown after the overall excellent "Out of Time". "AFTP" is too long, too weak, too sugary, too forcibly radio friendly. The rockers don't quite rock, and the ballads try too hard. This is not the R.E.M. I know and love.
